If I am understanding things correctly, Paul may be using FM 553 which, on Win95 anyway, has a known bug. Adobe supposedly fixed this in 556. Until you get 556 installed, if that is your problem, the solutions include changing a limited number of occurences and CLOSING your document. Then changing some more and closing, etc. When *I* hit this bug, I was replacing an approximate 8-letter string with null text. I could make 21 such changes before it crashed. The *helpful* Adobe person (who read my post on this group!) indicated that this bug had to do with Find/Replace changes that were causing reformatting of the document.
